Anthony's Cosmic Adventures, a choral fantasy
Date: July 18, 2014
New Composition for SATB/Piano by John Metz, self-published MetzScores.com
“I love it.” “Bravo” “So adorable!” “Marvelous” “The piece has a consistent and pleasing approach to the subject material. … can't wait to hear a choral recording!”
Based on a book of clever sci-fi poems by Frederick Winsor, (reprint, Purple House Inc.) this choral fantasy allows you to feature your smaller as well as your larger ensembles within one musical entity. (Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a Thief… for men’s chorus, and Spin along in Spacial Night for tenor and soprano soloists, other movements for full chorus.) Optional speaking roles for conductor and pianist, plus recommended stage action, as when the space child pushes the button that starts the machine that unravels The Theory that Jack Built.
Anthony’s Cosmic Adventures has got attention of and support from The Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University, which fosters the use of the arts and science fiction to generate greater interest in pursuing a career in the sciences.
